This is me weighing around 190 pounds (at least 10 pounds was from my fro).
At that time in my life what mattered most in terms of health and fitness was a spot on the roster.
As soon as I finished playing ball my focus switched to long-term health and wellness.
I now weigh 160 pounds and am a shadow of who I was in college physically but many times more “fit” for a long healthy life.
You have to figure out what matters most right now for yourself and then do the things that align with that goal.
If you want to look good and be healthy should you spend your time, money, and resources on eyelashes, makeup, and spray tans or a workout program and nutritious food?
If you want enough money to retire at a young age should you go out to eat often, drive expensive cars, and keep your closet stocked with the newest fashion trends or eat at home most of the time, drive a quality but not an extravagant car, and replace clothes only as needed?
Most often, like my fro in the picture above, the things that align with your goals are not sexy.
It doesn’t matter what you do as long as you know what’s most important for you and align your habits, actions, and behaviors with it.
Start with getting clarity on what matters most right now.
Once you know what matters most your life will become simplified and many decisions will be made before you ever encounter them.
